Brook Hogan is coming to her disgraced father’s defense in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight.
Hogan was exposed as a racist last month after RadarOnline leaked transcripts from a recording that contained Hogan dropping the n-bomb multiple times. The wrestling legend was upset because his daughter, who is now defending him, was dating a Black man.
“He’s my dad, I love him and the reason I’m standing by his side on this whole thing is because I know him, and it’s so easy for people to just — they need something to jump down people’s backs about,” Brooke tells ET. “He’s an easy target.”
Brooke goes on to highlight her father’s relationships with celebrities in the Black community, classifying them as evidence he’s not the bigot many now believe him to be. “My dad’s best friends with Mr. T, he’s best friends with Dennis Rodman, he’s not racist. It’s just when you’re mad and you’re at the lowest point in your life … you just choose ill-fitting words for that situation just to air your shorts out.”
Brooke then turned the conversation towards the racism SHE’S been subjected to over the years. “… This is something that we have to put a stop to everyday, because I’ll be honest with you, I’ve had a black guy call me a honkey, and I’ve also been told that white people smell like bologna. I don’t take offense to it, I just laughed at it.”
We’re just going to leave that one alone.
Hulk’s actions got him fired from the WWE, and his name wiped from the company’s website. He has since apologized, writing in a statement:
“It was unacceptable for me to have used that offensive language; there is no excuse for it; and I apologize for having done it. … I am disappointed with myself that I used language that is offensive and inconsistent with my own beliefs. It is not who I am. I continue to work every day to improve as a person, and this matter is an important learning experience for me in that regard.”
What do you all think of the wrestling icon’s daughter’s take on reverse racism? And are any of you willing to forgive Hulk? Let us know with your comments.
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
